What’s Left is a multimedia exhibit that creates a proactive dialogue on suicide to break the stigma that surrounds it. The goal of the exhibit is to depict the emotions of those who have lost loved ones to suicide. The exhibit opened at MacRostie Art Center in Grand Rapids, MN, in September 2015.

In 2016 What’s Left began touring to communities across the state. For the next two years, this powerful exhibit visited over two dozen communities in Minnesota.

As of September 2018, the artists have been reunited with their artwork, and the tour has ended. The project will live on through this website and through Project Director John Bauer’s continued work to raise awareness about mental illness and prevent suicide.


Thank you for your support!
